Democrats lead surge in belief that U.S. should be world leader


Ironinc isn't it. Until the war monger Obama arrived on the top flight of American politics, Democrats were known as the anti - war all-join-hands-and-sing-kumbaya party ...

from Hot Air

Three-fourths (75%) of Americans today think the United States has “a special responsibility to be the leading nation in world affairs,” up from 66% in 2010. The surge is driven by Democrats, whose belief in this idea has increased from 61% eight years ago to 81% now.

Since Donald Trump succeeded Barack Obama as president in 2017, he has drawn the ire of Democrats for his aggressive actions to reverse U.S. foreign policy on several fronts. Trump’s “America First” approach to foreign policy has led to the withdrawal of the U.S. from multinational agreements signed during Obama’s presidency and has caused conflict with other nations over trade and other issues. A November Gallup poll finds Democrats nearly unanimous (92%) in their disapproval of Trump’s handling of foreign affairs.

Republicans, who have a much more positive view (85% approval) in this month’s poll of Trump’s handling of foreign affairs, are slightly more likely now (79%) than in 2010 (73%) to say the U.S. should be the leading nation in world affairs, while support for the idea among independents has stayed about the same.

Trump Slams Britain's Brexit Deal


US President Donald Trump has warned Britain “may not be able to trade with the US” because of Theresa May’s Brexit deal in comments that could torpedo her hopes of winning Parliament’s backing.

Mr Trump said the agreement Mrs May reached with Brussels on Sunday “sounds like a great deal for the EU” as he urged the Prime Minister to think again.

The President’s intervention flies in the face of Mrs May’s claims that Britain will be able to strike free trade deals around the world after Brexit despite her concessions to the EU.

The timing could hardly have been worse for Mrs May, coming after she had spent hours in the Commons trying to convince MPs that her deal was the right one for Britain.

It hands her critics a powerful weapon as she begins a two-week election-style campaign to sell her deal to the public and save her premiership.

Love him or hate him, (and I'm indifferent,) Trump is right. Theresa May keeps talking aout 'after Brexit,' but her deal does not deliver Brexit, it simply moves the most contentious isues, fishing waters, the Irish border and Gibraltar out of the picture until after (appropriately) April 1, 2019. We cease to be members of the EU on Friday 29 March and on Monday 1 April we open for business as an EU vassal state.
And a vassal state we will continue to be until those three issues are resolved on terms the EU is willing to accept (i.e. total surrender.)

And if one reads the current draft agreement that parliament must vote on, as a vassal state we can't even fart without the EU's permission, let alone make bilateral trade deals.

Having said that, nobody should build up hopes of a favourable trade deal with the USA, nations that make "fair and equitable" trade deals with the US government generally find themselves holding the brown, smelly end of the stick.

Clinton Foundation To Be Investigated As Donations Dry Up


One of the long running but most ludicrous stories to dominate mainstream media in the USA has been the investigation, inspired by the campaign team of defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, of alleged collusion between the camaign of victorious candidate Donald Trump and the Russian government to rob Mrs. Clinton of the presidency. In parallel with that but reported with far less diligence by liberal dominated mainstream media has been the violations of state security laws by Mrs Clinton when she was secretary of State. Not only are these charges sibstantiated, it is know that the State Department and Department of Justice collaborated with the FBI, CIA and courts to protect Clinton and her associates from investigation.

But things seem to be changing.

According to a report by the Dallas Observer last November,  the Clinton Foundation has been under investigation by the IRS since July, 2016.
Meadows says that it's time for Huber to update Congress concerning his findings, and "expects him to be one of the witnesses at the hearing," per The Hill. Additionally Meadows said that his committee is trying to secure testimonies from whistleblowers who can provide more information about potential wrongdoing surrounding the Clinton Foundation
"We’re just now starting to work with a couple of whistleblowers that would indicate that there is a great probability, of significant improper activity that’s happening in and around the Clinton Foundation," he added. 
The Clinton Foundation - also under FBI investigation out of the Arkansas field office, has denied any wrongdoing.
Launched in January, the Arkansas FBI probe, is focused on pay-for-play schemes and tax code violations, according to The Hill at the time, citing law enforcement officials and a witness who wishes to remain anonymous.


The Clinton Foundation saw contributions dry up approximately 90% over a three-year period between 2014 and 2017, according to financial statements. 

The global charity is currently under investigation by the DOJ, FBI and IRS for a variety of allegations - including whether favors were handed out while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, also known as "pay for play." 
The Clinton-led State Department authorized $151 billion in Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation - a 145% increase in completed sales to those nations ove teh same time frame during the Bush administration, according to IBTimes

American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012. -IBTimes

Then there was that $1 million check Qatar reportedly gave Bill Clinton for his birthday in 2012, which the charity confirmed it accepted




Coincidentally, we're sure, Qatar was one of the countries which gained State Department clearance to buy US weapons while Clinton was Secretary of State, "even as the department signaled them out ofr a range of alleged ills," according to IBTimes.

Can We Escape 'The Wire'?



The Wire is simply a metaphor for the transmission of information.  The Wire takes many forms.  And if you aren’t sure whether something is The Wire just ask if you have control over it or not. 
The Internet?  The Wire.
Electricity?  The Wire
Roads?  The Wire.
Media?  The Wire.
Money?  The Wire.
In short, The Wire is the main conduit through which we communicate with each other. 

Money?  Really?  Yes, really.  What are prices if not information about what we are willing to part with our money in exchange for? And the push to dump banknotes and coins and move to a cashless society. A ploy for greater control, that's all. Cashless will mean every financial transaction with be tracked and recoded via, you guessed it, The Wire.

Without The Wire modern society fails.  So, government can’t shut it down but neither can it allow unconstrained access to it. In other words we have been duped into handing control of our lives to the people who control The Wire. And they're not nice people.

Electricity, commerce, communications, entertainment, everything, goes over The Wire.  

This isn’t a radical concept but like all important ideas, once it is presented to you you can’t unsee it.

But, identifying The Wire isn’t the important thing.  What’s important is knowing who controls The Wire and what they are willing to do to maintain that control.

If you look at the lists above you will see massive government intervention into these markets.  They need control of them to maintain the illusion they have control over you.

They sell you on the idea that speech, speed, education, commerce, defense, information, etc.  all need to have sensible limits placed on them.  But do they really or is this just yet another example of some control freak bureaucrat expanding his or her empire?

Look around you today and tell me what all the fighting is about.  Geopolitics, domestic policy, censorship, money, advertising, ideologies, etc.  They are all about the existential threat posed by a loss of control of The Wire.

'Unbiased' Facebook Fired Executive For Pro - Trump Political Beliefs


image
Zuck plays with one of Luckey's gadgets but denies Luckery the right to his own opinions.


Mainstream media and left wing politicians like to show how they are up with modern trends and developments by heaping praise on psychopathic Silicon Valley, virtue-signaling, shadowbanning, conservative - censoring, fake news generating social media billionaires. Thus, though the political bias towards the left / liberal parties and causes is blatantly obvious, they are allowed, when they appear before US Congressional committees to answer questions on abuse of privacy, or respond to accusations of bias by devising PR campaigns to show to the world they are truly impartial, with zero liberal bias. Unfortunately, every time they try to pull such a stunt, it backfires as their true ideological face quickly emerges from behind a fake, hypocritical mask.

A case in point is that of former Facebook executive, Oculus co-founder and virtual-reality wunderkind Palmer Luckey, who was a rising star of Silicon Valley when, at the height of the 2016 presidential contest, he donated a modest $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group. His donation sparked a backlash from his colleagues, which then led to him being put on leave, and six months later he was fired.

What stinks about Luckey's termination, is that when testifying before Congress about data privacy earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg denied, or rather lied that the departure had anything to do with politics. In fact, neither Facebook nor Mr. Luckey ever gave a reason why he left the social-media giant.

Now however, disgusted perhaps by Zuckerberg's continued hypocrisy in claiming Facebook is a totally neutral platform politically: according to a report from the WSJ, Luckey revealed to asociates the reason for his termination from that bastion of apolitical impartiality Facebook, was his support for Donald Trump and the furor that his political beliefs sparked within his employer, and Silicon Valley, some of those people say.

We should perhaps remind you here that support for Trump does not necessarily imply agreement with Trump's policies or admiration of his abrasive style. Post election analysis showed many people supported Trump because they were horrified at the prospect of corrupt, crooked, warmongering, morally dysfunctional Hillary Clinton, who in her campaign had effectively promised war with Russia by committing herself to attacking the Assad regime in Syria as soon as she took office.

Luckey's attack on Facebook and Zuckerberg is not just sour grapes either:leaked internal Facebook emails suggest the matter was discussed at the highest levels of the company. In the fall of 2016, as anger over his modest political donation to a candidate the boss didn't like simmered, executives at Facebook - which according to Open Secrets has spent over $60 million on lobbying in the past decade - including Zuckerberg pressured Mr. Luckey to publicly voice support for libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, despite Mr. Luckey’s years long support of Trump.

At that point Luckey, 26, allegedly hired an employment lawyer who argued to Facebook that it had violated California law in pressuring the executive to voice support for Johnson and for punishing an employee for political activity.

Which, we have to say is pretty typical behaviour among Silicon Valley billionires. Go against the 'corporate culture' as dictated by the billionaire boss, and you are dead

Luckey and his lawyer are not as stupid as Zuckerberg is arrogant and megalomaniacal, and negotiated a payout of at least $100 million, representing an acceleration of stock awards and bonuses he would have received through July 2019, plus cash, according to the people familiar with the case. The stock awards and bonuses were a result of selling his virtual-reality company, Oculus VR, to Facebook in 2014 for more than $2 billion, a deal that netted him a total of about $600 million.

In other words, Facebook can claim it was Trump's "fault" that a $10,000 donation resulted in a $100,000,000 payout just a few months later. What a bunch of wankers.

Trump Speaks Truth to Transgenders

By T.R. Clancy (for American Thinker)
In a press release dated November 1, 56 major companies, including Amazon, IBM, Deutsche Bank, and Dow Chemical, issued a statement of solidarity "with the millions of people in America who identify as transgender, gender non-binary, or intersex," opposing "any administrative and legislative efforts to erase transgender protections through reinterpretation of existing laws and regulations."  

This corporate virtue-signaling is needed in reaction to a New York Times report that the Department of Health and Human Services is proposing to "establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX."  The proposed definition, "[s]ex means a person's status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth," has become necessary to undo the legal havoc caused by former president Obama's decision to reinterpret "the legal concept of gender in federal programs ... [to recognize] gender largely as an individual's choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth."

To no one's surprise, any attempt at clarifying that Title IX's exact language prohibiting discrimination "on the basis of sex" refers to "protections to women and girls" has been met with wails that transgenders and "non-binaries" are being "erased."  Catherine E. Lhamon, one of the people who helped Obama formulate his sex-as-choice expansion of Title IX, says "the proposed definition 'quite simply negates the humanity of people.'"

But that's quite simply nonsense.  It's nonsense not least because Trump's interpretation of Title IX can no more negate transgenders' humanity than it was Barack Obama's muddying up of Title IX that beneficently bestowed humanity on them. Their humanity is not in question.

(Right. It's only their sanity we need to worry about - Jenny Greenteeth)

Leaked Document: United Nations Says Immigration Is Always Good And Should never Be Restricted

Only days after the European Court Of Human Rights (ECHR) gave a judgement with effectively reintroduced the notion of criminal blasphemy to Europe, but only for criticism of Islam (you can say what you like about Judaism and Christianity, and the more hateful and threatening the better,) a news reporter for German independent TV station RTL reported on a leaked United Nations document which reveals that corrupt bunch of Cultural Marxist paskudniaks plan to use immigration from third world shithole countries to destroy western civilisation. If you don't believe me just read the subtitles of the embedded video.

This blog has been telling you for fifteen years we are at war, not with Russia, China or Iran as mainstream media would have you believe but with the ruling elites of our own nations.

An RTL Commentator Utters Blasphemy Against the UN Migration Pact





RTL is the only major independent broadcaster in Germany. In the following clip from RTL, the commentator Jörg Zajonc expresses doubleplus ungood thoughts about the United Nations’ proposed migration pact.
Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Video transcript:

00:00 The U.N. Migration Pact, a wish-list detached from reality. Convolutedly
00:04 written, difficult to read and even more difficult to understand except for one claim:
00:08 Migration is good. It is always good and should never be restricted. Why?
00:12 No answer is given. The doubters are assured that it is just a consensus paper,
00:16 not legally binding. Officially that might be the case, but it IS binding — in a political and
00:22 moral sense. That can have legal consequences. That would mean anyone
00:26 can make a claim based on the Pact and take their case to court. What judge would
00:30 dare make a decision against the consensus? It comes from the U.N.
00:34 Additionally, it is noted in the pact that national laws should be taken into account,
00:38 but also encouraged that these national laws be adapted according to the interests
00:42 of the U.N. Then there’s the matter of “information”. There should be an open,
00:47 Fact-based discussion concerning this matter, but I ask how?
00:51 If the results are already established, the perception to be created should be more
00:55 realistic, humane, and more constructive. The media should involved in steering the
00:59 immigration. It says that — literally. And those who don’t play along, they will have
01:04 their financial support taken away. That’s written in there too!
01:08 There one thing that’s not explained in the Pact. If immigration is so great, then why
01:12 does it require a controlled information campaign or such a pact?
